Cork Printmakers artists present the exhibition Beyond Survival in response to the Backwater Artists Group Studio 12 programme for 2021: The Human Animal.

Beyond Survival examines contemporary image making in print and expanded print practice in the context of the historical journey of the human race, from developing language to symbolism to the eventual development of visual language and communication through contemporary art.

This exhibition featuring Cork Printmakers artists Lynn Marie Dennehy, Eimearjean Mc Cormack, Peter Nash and collaborators Catherine Hehir and Noelle Noonan highlights the many printmaking techniques used by Cork Printmakers members. Beyond Survival examines aspects of the human form and the role of the artist in portraying issues around existence, culture, place and language.

Established in 1991, Cork Printmakers is a professional print studio, gallery and resource organisation providing artists with facilities and equipment to create artwork through the medium of print. Located at Wandesford Quay in the heart of Cork City it supports and promotes the creation and development of new work through our studios, exhibitions, events and education programme, promoting the highest standards of practice in printmaking.
